Opening with my favorite from The Band, and among my favorites from the first Robbie Robertson solo album. Also, very rarely heard tunes from Abraxas Pool - most of the Santana band from the "Abraxas" period, who put out one hugely ignored album in 1997 - and The Spent Poets, who, like Abraxas Pool, put out one hugely ignored album, except in THEIR case, no one had ever heard of them otherwise. Or possibly since. Speaking of ignored, that also describes Adam Schmitt, who came out with an album in '93 that I swiped from Magic 105 (thank you, Magic 105), and "Three Faces West" is my favorite cut from that album. As you can probably tell, I got stuck in the "S" category in segment three (Sting, Schmitt, Sweet, Spent Poets, Satriani, Soup Dragons, Screaming Trees), and definitely check out the bit from National Lampoon, featuring Bill Murray and Christopher Guest. Absorb and enjoy!
